General Services Administration

Ogdensburg Border Patrol Building

Ogdensburg Federal Patrol Building

Ogdensburg, NY

Client: General Services Administration

This project included a complete overhaul of the building’s fire protection and life safety systems utilizing NFPA 914 Code for the Fire Protection of Historic Structures and NFPA 101, Life Safety Code. RAN Fire Protection Engineering served as the lead fire protection engineer for the project. Due to the limitations associated with the historic nature of the building, alternative design approaches were necessary to provide an
adequate level of life safety. A performance-based fire protection design was incorporated into the project. The
design was based on the anticipated fire severity predicted by fire modeling. A final cost-effective design that addressed the specific hazards in the buildings was accomplished.

Fort Drum Army Base

Fort Drum, NY

RAN Fire Protection Engineering has completed many projects for the Fort Drum US Army Base. In one of our projects, RAN Fire Protection Engineering provided design/build services. Additionally, RAN performed a code evaluation of the building completed along with the basic design drawings of the fire alarm and mass notification system. RAN’s engineers designed a wireless fire alarm system that connected the buildings together through digital alarm communicator transmitters (DACT). The signals from the DACT system were then received by wireless radio transmitters. These transmitters would then wirelessly alert the fire department in case of an incident. Additionally, the transmitters could also send and receive signals to each other, creating a wireless radio mesh network. Designing fire alarm systems for Fort Drum has led to RAN securing more projects designing a variety of other fire protection systems including automatic fire sprinkler and clean agent systems.


Letterkenny Army Depot

Chambersburg, PA

Client: Triangle Fire Protection

RAN Fire Protection Engineering provided a variety of services for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for building the Letterkenny Army Depot. The Letterkenny Army Depot includes office space, warehousing, and processing areas. RAN served as the FPDOR and FPQCR for this Design/Build project. Our duties included reviewing the existing drawings and submittals, hazard classification, and designing fire protection systems. Some of the hazardous areas in this building are flammable spray booths and blasting booths. To properly protect the building and its occupants, RAN designed an automatic sprinkler system and a fire pump. Since this is an Army facility, all of the designs were compliant with the Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC).


This project was roughly 45,000 sq-ft and had a total construction cost of roughly $15,000,000.
